Jeep Compass

Year Range

2012 – Nov 2017

Applies to

4x4 variants


Medium SUV

Engine / Fuel Type

Conventional vehicles

The tested model of Jeep Compass was introduced in Australia during 2012. This rating applies to 4x4 variants with a 2.4 litre petrol or 2.2 litre diesel engine and six airbags (see below).

The diesel left-hand-drive European model was tested by Euro NCAP. Australasian specifications may vary and therefore models sold in Australasia might provide different levels of protection to those described on this page. ANCAP was provided with technical information which showed that the 4x4 2.4 litre petrol variant can be expected to have comparable crashworthiness to the tested diesel variant.

Safety equipment, as tested, not standard on all variants. Dual front airbags and head-protecting side curtains are standard equipment. Antilock brakes and electronic stability control (ESC) are also standard. The vehicle tested by Euro NCAP has side thorax airbags for the front seats. This scoring applies to Compass variants with this feature. Without these airbags it can still be expected to achieve a 4 star rating.
